The best open-air restaurant in the world! Whales 50m away & snails 5cm away, the smell of the sea, great ambience & top notch service - what more can you ask for?!

Situated right on the beach and popular swimming place. Mostly popular with the young crowds which can sometimes be a little overwhelming for older persons. Food is great, but do not be in a rush if you want to eat something. Otherwise great setting

Disappointing experience, as they only have 'fried food' - always fish / calamari 'specials'. The venue needs attention, and a little more than 'rustic'. The service is average, although the staff members are friendly.

Staff all huddled around a fire I had to ask for to be made. No manager in sight. Staff laughing when I slipped down the horrible steps outside the toilets. Absolutely best view in town wasted on the worst excuse of a restaurant in town.
